2022 Fantasy Football Week 10 Stock Up/Stock Down

Welcome Fantasy friends and foes to the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 10 Stock Up/Stock Down.

Fantasy playoffs are creeping up on us, and we must be prepared. Stock up on handcuffs even if you don't roster the starter. Continue to stash players. Stay ahead of the curve. Don't be the last one at the party. You get what I am saying. Injuries will happen, be prepared.

Be prepared on who to cut ties with as well. Some players are just living up to their lofty draft status (hello, Najee Harris), and it is time to move on from those players. Let's find out which players have seen their stock rise and fall in the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 10 Stock Up/Stock Down.

Stock Up

Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears

I realize Justin Fields was listed as a Stock Up last week. But, come on. How can Justin Fields not be included after his record-breaking performance? Even though it was a losing effort, Fields was unstoppable in Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins. He ran for 178 yards, a new regular season record for a quarterback.

The former Buckeye finished with four total touchdowns on his way to producing 42.72 fantasy points, the highest quarterback score this season. Fantasy managers are excited to see what Fields can do now with the Bears' offensive play-calling building their offense around their best player. What a concept!

Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals

Speaking of outstanding performances, Joe Mixon won many matchups for fantasy managers in Week 9. Mixon totaled five touchdowns while rushing for 153 yards and catching four passes for 58 yards. He finished as the Week 9 RB1 with 55.1 fantasy points. Mixon and the Bengals returned with a vengeance after being embarrassed on Monday Night Football by the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.

Then, the Bengals thrashed the Carolina Panthers, 42-21. The crazy angle of this outburst was that Mixon had been a mild disappointment as the RB14 coming into that game with only three total touchdowns.

Joshua Palmer, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

The Los Angeles Chargers needed someone to step up with wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams on the shelf. Enter Joshua Palmer. Palmer was projected as the sleeper wideout to grab coming into Week 9. Instead, he stepped up with eight catches on ten targets for 106 yards, his first career 100-yard performance.

The return of the starting wideouts is uncertain, so Palmer will garner another opportunity this week.

Cade Otton, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady has always loved to throw to his tight ends, and with no Gronk this season, there was uncertainty about who will be TE1 in the Bucs' offense. The TE carousel was in full swing this season, with the latest stop landing on rookie Cade Otton. His role continues to increase, culminating in catching five passes for 68 yards and the game-winning score against the Los Angeles Rams.

His performance produced a TE4 in Week 9 and will lead to Otton being the most added tight end this week when the Bucs take on the Seattle Seahawks in Germany in Week 10.

Stock Down

Matthew Stafford, RB, Los Angeles Rams

Matthew Stafford is not playing like the QB5 that he finished last season. Stafford is struggling immensely this season and is a bottom-ten quarterback, and that is with Cooper Kupp. The Rams' offense is a shell of what they produced on the field last season, and their Super Bowl hangover is real.

Poor offensive line play has led to Stafford being sacked the fifth-highest through nine games, and there are zero improvements on the horizon for this offense.

Brian Robinson Jr., RB, Washington Commanders

Brian Robinson won the lead back role in the Commander's offense in the training camp. However, a shocking event led to Robinson being shot in a carjacking and missing the first four weeks this season. His return led to plenty of buzz with Antonio Gibson struggling, and fantasy managers ran to the waiver wire to grab the former Alabama RB. So far, the hype was not warranted.

Robinson averages only 3.3 yards per carry with one rushing score through five weeks. He is a non-factor in the passing game and has become an RB that fantasy managers are now running to drop.

Drake London, WR, Atlanta Falcons

Drake London had a promising start to his rookie season with 16 catches on 25 targets for 210 yards and two touchdowns through the first three weeks. This is one of the numerous reasons that Arthur Smith should not be the Falcons' head coach. London has failed to reach more than four receptions or 40 receiving yards in a game since.

Not tunneling your offense through your best two offensive options in London and Kyle Pitts is perplexing; they continue to run the ball to the point that the numbers 60.1% run/39.9 % pass ratio is maddening. This should be enough reason for Smith to get the pink slip.

Michael Pittman Jr., WR, Indianapolis Colts

As a big proponent for Michael Pittman, it is difficult to see how the Colts' struggles have diminished the value of the talented wideout. The uncertainty at quarterback and the injury to Jonathan Taylor have led to the Colts' offense being atrocious. Pittman has not finished above WR49 over the last three weeks.

There has to be plenty of pessimism that the offense can turn around now that Jeff Saturday has taken over for the fired Frank Reich. Wait, what?
